Gilad Atzmon: Are They Really ‘The People Of The Book’?


by Gilad Atzmon

Ahead of the publication of my “The Wandering Who” the entire Zionist network is in a total panic. Veterans Today’s senior Editor Gordon Duff  commented yesterday that just a ‘few books have been opposed as this one has’. He may as well be right.

It started last  Friday, with the Hasbara mouthpiece “Jewish Chronicle” of London attacking Professor Mearsheimer for endorsing a book ‘by an antisemite’.

I don’t know how many times do I have to mention that I am not an antisemite for I really  hate everyone equally. For some reason, my detractors refuse to take this simple message on board.

Then, the Islamophobic agent-provocateur “Harry’s place” — who never miss a chance to muddy the water — joined in, intimidating and harassing  a London academic  just because she tweeted that she likes Atzmon’s book

Just before London Tea Time, America woke up. Within the hour, her Zionist stooges were ready to join the campaign. EX- IDF concentration camp guard Jeffrey Goldberg* had a clear plan to chew Professor John J. Mearsheimer circulating the same banal and unsubstantiated accusations.


At that stage, it appeared to be a campaign that was run by hundreds of Zionist enthusiasts. But if one scratches the surface, it was actually an orchestrated move of barely more than five Jewish bloggers.

They have mobilised another twenty or so book burners or shall we call them ‘wandering  sockpuppets’ that habitually attack in different areas of the net and the press, co-coordinating to harass, bully and intimidate, with the same dull, repetitive, accusations, ‘arguments’ and smears.

My retired Intel friends and readers tell me that simple pattern analysis gave them away as they used the same talking points and routine methodology…creatures of habit.

[Editor’s note:] Media penetration has always been a long time target of Israeli espionage. This includes partnering and even owning media platforms with various suitable fronts.  Social media has now been added to the list as suppressing critique of radical nationalist Zionism is national security issue to them.

Hence they feel totally justified in unleashing their Intelligence networks onto this area. The Hasbara network is their main tool. They are willing, inexpensive, and replaceable…a commodity. The incredible irony here is that the topics of discussion which are very open within Israeli media and society…they ruthlessly suppress outside of Israel.

A growing number of intelligence personnel consider this an attack on their respecitive countries, and therefore a major national security issue. If there is any group of people who understand the threat of a ‘preparing and controlling the minds’ operation from a foreign intelligence attack, it is they. Things will be getting much more interesting in this arena… Jim W. Dean.

By Sunday night the Guardian published an appalling piece by one Andy Newman of Swindon , who, according to one of his “Socialist Unity” editors, attacked Atzmon simply to appease the relentlessly Islamophobic “Harry’s Place” public.

Top columnist and Middle East analyst Jonathan Cook reacted to the Guardian smear saying, “whatever one thinks of Atzmon, this is clearly a smear job of him (and Alison Weir). Where is the evidence, or even convincing argument, for the claims being made?  It is pure Pravda.” Not exactly a flattering comment on the Guardian.

By then it was clear that  Islamophobic Award winning Harry’s Place wasn’t going to stop.

In fact Harry Place’s, Goldberg and JC collective tantrum is explored in The Wandering Who. I define it as ‘Pre Traumatic Stress Syndrome,’ as opposed to Post Traumatic stress syndrome.

They are all terrorized and genuinely traumatized by a book they refuse to read with the hope that the Goyim may surrender and ban it on their behalf.

On Monday afternoon, Professor Mearsheimer published a complete expose  of  Goldberg’s lameness and the  tactics he and his ilk use against myself and others.

They quote out of context, they ‘copy and paste’, they forge paragraphs, they deliberately and consciously attribute misleading meanings. In fact, none of those who reacted to the book negatively has read the book or any of my papers.

They all refer to quotes that were picked arbitrarily from the ‘Amazon Lookinside page’. I find myself wondering, are these people really the ‘People of the Book’? I guess that People of  the ‘Copy & Paste’ is a much  better description for  Goldberg  and his wandering sockpuppets.

Within minutes after Mearsheimer revealed the typical deceitful operation, the wandering sockpuppets were called in to fight Mearsheimer and Walt at the “Foreign Affair Journal” site.

By the time they finished posting their filth, the respected magazine comment section looked indeed like a cyber shtetle.

In a final  desperate attempt to jeopardize the publication of the book and to silence its author.

Richard Seymour AKA ‘Lenin Thumb’,  authored a new anti Atzmon manifesto  

I read Richard ‘Lenin’ Seymour’s  text with interest and found out that for some reason, both ‘avant-garde revolutionary’  Seymour’s text, and Guardian’s ‘socialist’  Andy Newman’s drivel are suspiciously far too similar to the unforgettable ‘Aaronovitch Reading Atzmon’ performance at the Oxford Literature Festival.

One may wonder how come Seymour, an alleged revolutionary radical Marxist, Andy Newman, a mediocre socialist  and Neocon pro war Aaronovitch are caught together naked holding ideological  hands.

Aaronovitch & Newman

How is it that the three try  to prevent myself and others from criticising Jewish political lobbying?

For some reason they also don’t want us to look closely into the events that led to the financial turmoil. How is it possible that a hard core Zionist and ultra radical leftists are not only employing the same ideological argument but also performing the exact same tactics?

Clearly, there is an obvious ideological and political continuum between Aaronovitch, Newman and Seymour. The Wandering Who  scrutinizes this very continuum.

Zionism clearly  maintains and sustains  its ‘radical left opposition’ and the logos behind such a tactic is simple- ‘revolutionary’ left is totally irrelevant to both the conflict and its resolution.

Hence, Zionists cannot dream of an easier opposition to handle. When the Zionists detect a dangerous rising intellect who aims at the truth, they obviously utilize and mobilize the Jewish left together with the few willing Sabbath Goyim executioners to gatekeep the emerging danger.

Seymour, Newman and a just few others are always happy to attact the emerging intellect.

Indeed they were effective for years. From an intellectual perspective our movement is pretty much a desert. Every deep thinker we have ever had has been targeted by the Jewish Left and their Sabbath Goyim.

But for some reason, they somehow failed with me. My views on Palestine and Israel are now circulated on most dissident journals and my book The Wandering Who is endorsed by the most important people scholars and activists in our discourse.

So far, all efforts to stop the book have fallen apart . There is no sign of anyone pulling the book out but there are clear signs that the Hasbara orchestrated campaign has backfired. No one surrendered to the Zionist campaign and its stooges. As they said in Tahrir Square, ‘we have lost our fear.’

The Wandering Who is now a best seller for more than a week (as far as Amazon ranking can tell). On the Jewish best seller list, it is even more popular than the Babylonian Talmud and the Torah. I guess that this is indeed a great concern for Zionists and  their stooges, but there is nothing they can do about it.

Jeffrey Goldberg made Aliya when he was eighteen: he left America for Israel, joined the IDF and served as a prison guard in an Israeli concentration camp during the First Intifada.

[Editor’s Note:] The percentage of American Jews who feel compelled to serve in the Israeli Defense Forces far exceeds that who have served in America’s. They are historically the most under represented group in the American military, especially in the enlisted ranks and the closer you get to a combat unit.

Our feed back has been that they look down on American military service as ‘beneath them’ (ie. for schmucks). Few seem to be concerned over the obvious public relations aspects, ie…’We have people who take care of that sort of thing.’ We think they need some new public relations consultants.


US Fed News Service, Including US State News February 10, 2010 PENSACOLA, Fla., Feb. 9 — The U.S. Navy issued the following press release:

By Gary Nichols, Center for Information Dominance Public Affairs Navy Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) is one of several Navywide programs that helped launch the Navy into a lofty 17th place ranking in Training Magazine’s prestigious “Training Top 125” list for 2010 during an awards ceremony Feb. 1 at the San Diego Convention Center.

The “Training Top 125” is an annual list, which honors corporations and organizations that offer outstanding employer-sponsored workforce training and development.

This is the ninth time Training Magazine has produced its “Training Top 125” and the first time the Navy applied for and made the cut. In fact, this is the first time any military service has been included on the list. see here best buy mastercard

“We get a significant number of newcomers that apply each year,” Training Magazine Editor-in-Chief Lorri Freifeld said, “but it’s unusual for an organization come in that high on the list.” That recognition helped the Navy join the ranks of prestigious, well-known and highly successful corporations that include Microsoft, Verizon, Best Buy, MasterCard, McDonald’s, Delta Airlines UPS and Home Depot.

“The Navy had really great training programs,” Freifeld said.

One of those programs is Navy COOL, which stood up at the Center for Information Dominance (CID) Corry Station in Pensacola, Fla., in 2006 and has become a widely sought-after program for both Sailors and civilians who are thinking of becoming Sailors.

Navy COOL is a centralized, Web-based hub that consolidates information from numerous sources at the federal, state and local levels on certifications, licenses, apprenticeships and growth opportunities that correspond with each Navy rating, job and occupation. go to site best buy mastercard

Navy COOL provides funding for Navy enlisted personnel to obtain civilian licenses and certifications that are closely aligned to Navy jobs or ratings.

“Credentialing within the Dept of Navy is a relatively new concept but is paying huge dividends for our Sailors who have used the program,” said Navy COOL Program Supervisor Sam Kelley.

“I am extremely proud of the outstanding work performed by our Navy COOL team,” CID Corry Station Commanding Officer Capt. Gary Edwards said. “They have done an absolutely great job of ensuring that each and every Sailor in the Navy can improve personally and professionally by having an opportunity to earn certifications.” Kelley said his team cross-linked every Navy specialty or rating with Department of Labor equivalent and ensured the Navy offered at least one civilian certification to each job within the Navy.

The end result of the pursuit of a civilian certification is that the Sailor’s individual professional knowledge and skill-set usually increases due to the extra preparation time required for certification examinations and ongoing maintenance of that certification.

“These additional skills may not necessarily be performed or taught in the Navy’s formal training pipeline,” Kelley said, “but are skills performed by the Sailors’ civilian counterparts. The real benefit to the Navy is having a Sailor with increased individual proficiency as a result of gaining and maintaining additional industry-recognized skills.” “We looked at a lot of factors both quantitatively and qualitatively,” Freifeld added. “The training the Navy conducts wasn’t just for fun or because it was nice to have. The training really helps the Navy strategically and it has demonstrable results.” For example, Navy COOL reports more than 2,800 Sailors have reenlisted, which have been directly attributed to them taking advantage of Navy COOL. According to Kelley, the return on investment or “cost avoidance,” since the Navy kept these Sailors instead of losing them to the civilian sector, to date has exceeded $280 million.

Perhaps just as impressive is the high pass rate of 96 to 98 percent for voluntary licenses and certifications among Sailors, compared to the national average pass rate of 75 to 80 percent.

“This tells us the program is exceeding all expectations,” Kelley added. “This program is a definite win for the Sailor, the Navy and the civilian Department of Labor workforce.”

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer. Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.” His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at
